    I'm trying to do an online investigation of my equifax report. It's asking for a confirmation #. I have my credit report in front of me. What is the confirmation #??? Please help!

    There should be a confirmation number at the top of the first page of your report. It is just above your personal identification info.

    If you are looking @ your Equifax file. One the First Page under their address for all future correspondence (at the very top right corner). Directly below it you will see in BIG BOLD print "CREDIT FILE - Confirmation Numer: XXXXXXXXXX" It's like that on every page @ the top.

    This is how it looks by mail. If you got it somewhere else.. ex. online. I am not sure what it would look like.

    Thanks for the responses. The online version must be different because I am looking at it and looking everywhere and can't seem to find it!

    when you access your report, they ask you to print or write down the confirmation #. I usually print mine out.

    You may not be able to initiate and online investigation with Equifax. If your account is serviced by an Equifax affiliate, your report won't contain the confirmation number.

    Look at your online report. The first page (personal information) scroll down to investigate your file. If there is a name and address for a local credit bureau, you can not initiate an online investigation. All disputes must be sent to that bureau. If you send them to Equifax directly, they'll just forward the request to them.

    Hope this helps some,

    Thanks again for the help. Roni, the confirmation # that they suggest you print out isn't the one. I tried it. It's way too long and I tried taking out the letters and still wouldn't work. My account is not serviced locally--I have a feeling that the confirmation # they are referring too is only found on the mailed copies.
    I managed to find a way to do an online investigation without the confirmation #!

    Kelly, when you go to "online investigation request" at their site, if you try to submit the request without the confirmation # it won't take it. However, if you go to "contact us" you can submit all of the information there and submit. They give you the format and everything. I only discovered this because I thought going to the "contact us" screen would allow me to email them to ask about the confirmation #. Hope that helps!

    Do you know if they forward the information to the local agency for them to process? My Equifax is handled by CSC Credit Services in Houston, TX.
